Was once an leader in the packaging industry
Technical (Former Employee), Cumberland, RIJanuary 16, 2013
Pros: was a great place to craft my abilities.
Cons: misguided management.
This company has lost track of it's simple goal of being profitable. To much focus was on saving money instead of making money. I was able to excell when not micro managed. Seasoned employees should be relied upon. Their experience is your sucess. The hardest part my my job was the person I reported to and eventually our division's collapase. The most – more... enjoyable part of my job was my work family which I miss very much. – less
